Welcome to the Village of Waverly, a little valley community of about 4,100 residents that literally lays on the New York-Pennsylvania border. Waverly is tiny, and yet it's the largest village in rural Tioga County, NY. It also has one of the lowest crime rates in the nation, making it a safe place to live.
Waverly is part of one seamless "Penn-York" community along with Sayre, PA; South Waverly, PA; and Athens, PA. Together, these small towns make up the greater area known as the Penn-York Valley, or just "The Valley."
The NY/PA border cuts through this community, along with railroad tracks left over from the Lehigh Valley Railroad. Residents enjoy the best of both sides. For example, the PA side has no tax on clothing, and the Waverly side boasts:
- Soprano's Family Deli on Cayuta Avenue
- Ted Clark's Busy Mart on Broad Street
- Rail House Restaurant and Tap House on Broad Street
- Jolly Farmer on Elizabeth Street.
Waverly Central School District is a small school district with some 1,700 students. The Administration office is located at 15 Frederick Street, Waverly. Five schools serve students in PreKindergarten through twelfth grade.
- Lincoln Street Elementary (PreK-2)
- Elm Street Elementary (3-4)
- Waverly Intermediate (5-6)
- Waverly Middle (7-8)
- Waverly High School (9-12)
